Jasmine L.'s Beauty Product Reviews
GDE is one of my favorite brands. The quality is the highest and they have an amazing range of shades and finishes. I have several Bare Minerals shadows and if you ask me, GDE is better. You can use them wet or dry, they are buildable or you can sweep them on for a more sheer look. There are only a few shades listed here, but there are hundreds more.
I switched to another brand after trying these. They make my skin feel very tight after use and I have to add makeup remover to effectively remove my eye makeup. Im also unsure of whether they're cruelty free. The packaging says no animal ingredients, but it doesn't say there's no animal testing.
Super impressed with the coverage and durability of Juleps polishes. They are pricey, but worth it if you can get the three polish boxes. I love that they are 3 free, meaning that they don't have the damaging and poisonous chemicals that some brands use. Morgan is my fav, but it's not on the list.
Even with primer, this liner runs and smudges all over the place. Within an hour what's left fades to a pale gray, looking more like I just woke up. I got this in a kit, so at least I didn't spend a lot of it.
Love the color, love the moisture, love the peppermint flavor. It's the perfect peachy coppery pink and looks great with no makeup or a full face. I'm really fair and it doesn't wash me out or give me that prostitute pout some pink shades do. This gloss just makes me feel pretty. My only complaint is that it's too sticky. I hate it when my hair sticks to it.
I have 5 of Sugarpills loose shadows: Goldilux, Hysteric, Lumi, Stella, and Magpie. They are fantastic both in pigmentation and endurance. It stays beautiful and vibrant all day. They are great both wet and dry, easily layered and easily build-able (so you can go from sheer to intense without a ton of effort or product).
I have used both the original and the Eden shade. I don't like how yellow the finish is in Eden. I've noticed that it changes the color of the shadow you put on top of it, so I have to be careful which colors of shadow I use it with. I love the original though. It is neutral on the lid, keeps makeup looking freshly applied and in place, even with oily lids like mine.
